These two options have been confirmed to work on the RPi: rdesktop and freerdp. These should both work on Raspbian, from within xwin (use startx to get there). You can install either from the terminal prompt using default installer (aptitude).

Install rdesktop with this command:

sudo apt-get install rdesktop

Run like this:

rdesktop <hostname/ip_address_of_Windows_machine>

Install freerdp with this command

sudo apt-get install freerdp

Run like this:

xfreerdp <hostname/ip_address_of_Windows_machine>

  • Thanks. I found freerdp yesterday. Think I will go with that – Benjamin Jones Jun 16 '15 at 13:04
